A New Public Space
The new Park at Penn’s Landing will connect the city to the heart of the waterfront.

The new Park at Penn’s Landing will be a 11.5-acre civic space stretching between Chestnut Street, Walnut Street, Front Street, and the Delaware River. The park will include a wide variety of activities and features, including flexible open space for performances and festivals; food and drink options; a new play area; a relocated RiverRink for ice skating in the Winter; and a water play area to cool off in the Summer. DRWC is currently conducting a city-wide effort to engage Philadelphians from all backgrounds and neighborhoods as we aim to make the New Park at Penn’s Landing a public space where people of all backgrounds feel genuinely welcome and safe.

A master plan for the future.

In 2011, the future of Penn’s Landing was first envisioned in the Master Plan for the Central Delaware. This plan became a roadmap to guide all waterfront development between Port Richmond and Pennsport.

After a three-year study involving input from the community, a team of designers and engineers confirmed that a new park space was possible at the waterfront. Construction is scheduled to start in 2023.

Thanks to city, state, and philanthropic leaders, the Park at Penn’s Landing will become a reality. This project will also include a new trail along Columbus Boulevard and an extension of the South Street Bridge to bring pedestrians directly to the waterfront.

Today, DRWC and its engagement team, led by PennPraxis; Little Giant Creative; SEAMAAC; Make the World Better Foundation; and the Village of Arts & Humanities is developing a major city-wide outreach effort. The goal is to cultivate the community’s vision for this new public space and help decide future programming.
